We support businesses in Camden who want to make their small deliveries using environmentally sustainable zero-emission transport that is cost-efficient and time-saving.
Our electric assisted cargo bikes are designed for safely and securely carrying sizeable loads. This offer is open to all businesses in Camden. It will be particularly suited to those who are regularly using routes that have been opened up for additional traffic by bike.
This offer is backed up for free by the Camden Cargo Bike Network. Their expert advisers specialise in freight audits, total cost saving assessments and journey time forecasts.
There are three types of cargo cycle on offer:
1. Tern GSD cycle
This electric assisted cargo bicycle is easy to ride. It is the same size as a regular bike, and handles like one. It can be fitted with two loading racks, one in front, and a larger one behind the rider (not shown on illustration). There is space for a further two XXL pannier bags at the back.
The bike is capable of carrying 170kg (27 stone), comprising rider, passengers and any additional load. It comes with detachable battery and charger, which plugs into a standard power socket. For more information about this bike see www.ternbicycles.com/uk/bikes/gsd.
2. Christiania tricycle
This cargo tricycle of classic Danish design is now available with electric motor assistance. It is extremely easy to ride, requiring no balancing at all. It is very wide and a little longer than a regular bike. The front compartment fits large and heavy load. Starting and stopping is particularly convenient as the load need not be balanced by the rider or a bike stand. For more information about this cycle see https://www.londongreencycles.co.uk/shop/bikes/christiania-classic-light.
3. Urban Arrow cycle
This state of the art transport vehicle is has the capacity to carry impressive loads. Due to its size a large secure storage area will be needed. Riding this bicycle requires a little practice, but is not much different from other bikes once the rider is used to weight and dimensions.
